Happy Tuesday dolls! Yesterday I was at the launch of the MBFWCT17 courtesy of the fabulous people at Mercedes-Benz SA. The launch was held at the stunning Mesh in Rosebank just up the Glam Alley! I spent the night with some fabulous leaders in fashion in Johannesburg and the gracious Dr Precious Motsepe.

OOTN: I stepped out in my bamboo handle Gucci Dinosysus with my a snug pair of jeans and strappy heels – P.S this baby is a def part of my classic bags now! I saw the black one on Beyonce and died, I had to get my own in my own style something that was a bit more missposhglam, Gucci collection is growing gradually, Ive always been an LV lover so the the change is still scary *covers eyes*. Yesterdays look was a inspired by the Queens look one of my faves casual yet classy.

firm believer in thinking that way too.

lifestyle events, further placing AFI as a Pan-African leader in fashion.MBFWCT17 Media Launch Invite.jpg

My love for flowers and beautiful spaces led me back to this beautiful garden again. Anyone who knows me knows how much I love flowers and when I visited this immaculate space again I had to show it off!

It’s nothing short of being the perfect sanctuary and a day spent here is a priceless invigorator being surrounded by not just a beautifully curated landscape that makes you escape from the Northern City Lights but all the love that literally lives in this garden.

Set in the quiet suburb of Dunnottar, Nigel you can’t do anything but unwind when here it almost feels like a mini vacay. I love that it has three different sections and well depending on your mood you can lay on the grass and gaze at the stupendous bed of magenta, coral and white roses, or have tea under the thatched gazebo beautifully designed with leaf vines. yes I’m in love i fell in love the first time i stepped into it and i’m still in love with it after another weekend spent there, but also a blogger and photographers dream and definitely goes into my fave hidden gems list.

Almost forgot to share my outfit details, it was another relaxed weekend so I paired my black denim jeans from nimcouture with a camel coloured sleeveless waterfall coat also from Nimcouture, black long sleeve  tee with sheer detail from WoolWorths, I added a little bit of chic to this weekend outfit with my Gucci – Guccisima leather belt with Gold interlocking G’s one of my fave belts in Red, I finished this look with my quilted Yves Saint Laurent Boots also an oldie but I’m still in love and accessories from Pandora.

The  denim skirt has been trending for a couple of seasons now, ever since Alexa Chung released her iconic version in her AG collaboration for SS15. She has gone one better most recently though and designed a few more versions in varying lengths for the autumn 2015 collection and we have seen this style on so many fashion bloggers and celebrities already!

My fave is the take on the classic denim skirt , the distressed pencil denim skirt.Brands have done their own take on the trend, releasing styles in long, short and mid lengths in light, mid or dark blue. Some have a more unique appeal with distressing and variations on the buttons, while some are completely classic and speak of the 90’s. One thing is for sure and that’s that the denim skirt trend is staying! I love how it gives me a casual yet chic look because, its also so easy to dress up. I’ve styled my denim pencil skirt from Nimcouture with Roberto Cavali gold scrappy sandals,my classic burberry watch,gold ring from spree, my classic flap chanel bag, and a denim coloured tee from woolworths (SS15) have a fabulous tuesday dolls!
